Greg & Rachel Shipp
CENTRAL & SOUTH AMERICA
Greg and Rachel want to use their gifts in God's service to help people of all cultures experience the power of God’s Word and His love in a language that speaks straight to their hearts. Even before hearing about Wycliffe, Rachel had developed a keen interest in social research and hopes to apply these skills in support of Bible translation projects. Greg’s understanding of God’s plan was deepened by a Wycliffe trip to the Philippines and a short introduction course to language learning and culture. He also hopes to use his existing skills in finance. They joined Wycliffe in 2017. Greg and Rachel have felt drawn to Latin American cultures. Having previously travelled and served short term in this part of the world they are excited to have been accepted to serve with SIL in Mexico along with their two daughters, Elodie and Marieke, after they’ve completed SIL training in 2019.
